Studio & Stage Equipment
If you are doing your photography from a studio the amount of equipment you use will be up to the individual. It depends on how simple or advanced you want the studio to be. One of the most important aspects of a studio is the lighting. The light sources you may use could be direct or indirect. Some of the equipment you may end up needing could include lights, light stands, booms, boom stands, reflectors, umbrellas, cables, flash units, lenses, filters and meters, slaves, light meters, poles, ladders and paint. Make sure your equipment is well organized and out of the way so you or your clients don't trip over it. You may want to store some of it in cases or carts. If you are a professional photographer make sure you are well supplied. Studio equipment can range from just a few dollars for cables to a few thousand for lights.
